Healthwatch Gloucestershire - Support Around End of Life Care.

As part of the Clinical Commissioning Groups End of Life Care Strategy, Healthwatch Gloucestershire is looking at what end of life support is available for individuals over 18 years old both locally and nationally. This support is non-clinical support; not information about illnesses or conditions but other types of information that would support patients or families through the end of life. We want to hear from Gloucestershire residents only, who have accessed support around end of life care or who would be looking at accessing this information. End of life patients are individuals ‘approaching the end of life’ when they are likely to die within the next 12 months.

 

The information gathered during the evaluation will help to understand what is available to support people locally and nationally, identify gaps and raise awareness of this support to those that need it as part of the End of Life Care Strategy and improve end of life care.

Changes to Prescription Ordering from July 2018

Patient Information Leaflet

Following changes both County wide and with NHS services, Cam and Uley Family Practice is changing the way that prescription ordering is managed.

From September 1st 2018 we will no longer be accepting your repeat prescription requests from the pharmacy. We will be processing ‘On line’ and telephone requests using a new central dedicated Prescription Ordering Phone Line (POL) which accepts phone calls from patients, five days a week.

If the majority of your medication is obtained every 28 days, then we can send the pharmacy a ‘batch’ of your prescriptions which you can collect on a monthly basis. This is known as Repeat Dispensing (Pathfinder). A telephone call can be arranged with our Practice Pharmacist – Sarah Newey, to assess your suitability and explain this option further. Any infrequent items can still be ordered via telephone or online as detailed below.

Prescription ordering line- Telephone the dedicated Prescription Ordering Line (POL): 0300 421 1215.

Online Services – If you have not done so already, register with SystmOnline. This is an online service linked to our computer system which many of our patients are finding very useful. Please ask reception to register for this service where you can then:

  • Manage Appointments
  • View and Request Prescriptions
  • Add or Change Contact details
  • View Blood Test results
  • View your patient summary record.
  • Request Access to your SystmOne Detailed Patient Record.

You can access SystmOnline via our website www.cam-and-uley.nhs.uk or via the SystOnline app. The app can be used on :

  • Apple devices running the IOS operating system (iPhones & iPads).
  • Mobile phones and tablets running Android operating systems.

The App is listed on the Apple App Store and Google Play store (search for SystmOnline) it is free to download.

You can use the same username and password on the app as on the website.

If you would like to register for online services, please speak to reception who will be able to generate a password and username for you.

The NHS and Doctors are encouraging patients  to nominate a pharmacy so that repeat prescriptions can be sent electronically direct to your chosen chemist. This is more efficient and much safer as paper prescriptions can go astray or be delayed. It also saves you time as it speeds up your collection time.

Electronic prescriptions have a dedicated trail and can always be found and tracked.

To implement this, it would be appreciated if patients  could confirm their choice of local Pharmacy/chemist they would like to collect their repeat medications from in the future.

Please contact the Dispensary on 014538 860459 or alternatively, when you place your next repeat prescription order with the dedicated Prescription Ordering Line (0300 421 1215) you can nominate your choice of pharmacy with them.

Thank you for your co-operation.
